Mask Requirements While Visiting Sagamore Hill

Unless visitors are fully vaccinated, masks are required in the following indoor and outdoor areas when others are present and where physical distancing (staying at least six feet apart) cannot reasonably be maintained:
  • All common areas and shared workspaces in buildings owned, rented or leased by the National Park Service, including, but not limited to, park visitor centers, administrative offices, lodges, gift shops and restaurants

  • Exterior porch of the Theodore Roosevelt Home
  • The bridge over Eel Creek

  • Carriage House/Farm Shed and Chicken Coop Exhibits
Masks must cover the nose and mouth and fit snugly around the nose and chin with no large gaps around the sides of the face. Masks not designed to be protective, masks with ventilation valves, and face shields do not meet the requirement. Regardless of vaccination status, all individuals must comply with all orders regarding masks issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
